In loving memory ~
Terry was predeceased by his parents Don & Anna Ellis, his brother Danny Ellis and stepdaughter Danielle.
Terry leaves to mourn his previous partner Janet Davidson and her daughter Vicky Lamsdalen who he considered as his own daughter, they shared a very special bond. He also leaves to mourn his siblings, Ernie Ellis, David Ellis, Donna (Joe) Trozzo, Scott Ellis, and Patsi (Chris) Cass, his nephews and nieces, Dustin, Andrew, Anna, Heather, Sadie, Carley, Eric, Jeremy and Stephanie and their families.
Terry went to the School of Hard Knocks, he left home at 14. He worked in the logging industry for numerous years then finished his working career at The Real Canadian Superstore in Kelowna where he worked for almost 20 years, retiring in 2015 to take care of his oldest brother Ernie, knowing Mom & Dad would be so proud of him for stepping up. Terry was a collector, his collections include Hawaiian shirts, records and classic comic books and anything Terry thought he could make a buck on.
Terry lived life on his own terms, in his own words he was an old fart who loved beer and Gunsmoke. Terry will be deeply missed by his family and friends. There will be a celebration of life later in 2023.
